Two a Day – Tempo Runs
Since today is Tuesday, that means that I have two workouts in the day. My morning workout consisted of a 75 minute tempo run, and the evening session consisted of a 2 mile tempo run.
In the morning workout I started out with a 10 minute easy jog. The pace on that jog was 5.2 on the treadmill. After the 10 minutes was up, I then changed the speed to 6.1 and ran for 75 minutes. Once I completed the 75 minutes, I changed the speed to 5.2 and did an easy jog for 10 minutes. That was my morning tempo run.
The evening run was another tempo run. It was a 2 mile tempo run. What I did was do an easy pace for 1 mile. That pace was 10:30. At the end of that pace, I then ran 2 miles. The first mile was a 9:17 pace and the second mile was at 7:48. I then jogged back for 1 mile at a 10:17 pace.
Overall, the two tempo runs felt very good. Tomorrow will be a 5 mile run at a 10:10 pace … Then weights in the afternoon. On thursday, I will only bike … not running on Thursday. And I plan on enjoying some turkey and fixings!
